Reloading advice

I just bought some .270 Barnes Triple Shock TTSX Boattail 130 GR Bullets and I have IMR 4831 Powder.
I have read the Barnes reloading book and it doesnt mentioning using this powder for this type of bullet.
Have any of you reloaded this bullet with this powder? If so, how much powder should I use? This is what the Barnes book has listed:

The only powder it has listed are:
Win 760
H414
IMR4350
H4350
HUNTER
RL19

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

re: Reloading advice
Look for similar weight bullets with the same weight and with the ballistics you want

re: Reloading advice
If you choose a similar bullet and use that data make sure you start low and work up. What kind of manual doesn't have 4831 listed for a130 grain 270?

Google it.

I'm no reloader, but I've always heard Speer is the reload manual to have

re: Reloading advice
Dang guys, yall are brutal ha.

I literally just bought all of my stuff a few days ago and am learning. I wanted to make sure I could use similar bullet types and powder weights. From what I have found, I could use between 52gr-57gr with this bullet type.
I just wanted to make sure of all of this before I started loading these rounds.

I appreciate the advice

A guy loaded some Nosler 130 gr Ballistic Tips for me last year with Reloader 22, and they were super accurate.

This... start low and if it is not enough then you can inch your way up to that sweet spot. I actually do that on any of my rounds even if it gives a spot on charge in a book.

This is a great powder for most deer rifles.

That being said, the Hornady 8th Edition reloading manual covers a ton of load data. You can buy it at Cabela's or Bass Pro. It's the giant red one that looks like this:

EDIT: NEVER guess charge weights. Don't compare the charge weight of one powder to another. Every single powder has its own characteristics and it can be dangerous to simply "guess." Be smart and use load data from a manual.

R22 is good stuff, but seems like I remember it being temp sensitive. H4831 is my go to powder for 270win. My 300wsm likes r17.

My dad was able to get .36MOA with it in 300WM and around .5MOA in his 270.

He loves 4831 for 260 Rem and 243 Win though. I think he prefers the short cut variety.
